Washington, Hopt. 12. Tlio gonnral
land ofllcu todaj mado public a stato
mont showing tho approximatn amounts
contributed to tho loclamatlou fund by
various Western stato during tho Inst
lineal year. Those figure, while not
exact, aro within a fow dollars of tho
proper amounts and much closer than
lough osllmales made naveral weeks
ago, which were basud on tho propor
tions of past reasons. As previously
explained, Oregon is tho largost con
tributor, having paid in 1,884,730
last year, which makes Its total con
tributions for tho past threo years (2,.
705,000, This latUir amount Is 1360,
000 In excora of what any other stato
lis so far contributed, North Dakota
being second, and Washington third.
Last year Washington contributed II..
000.009, nrlnglng its total fnnd up to
11,804,000. Idaho has to Its credit in
tho fund (1,140,007, of which (042,
-MH wm added last yrar.
Under tho policy adopted by tlm In
terlor department following cut the
provisions of the Irrigation law, 51 per
cent of tlio contribution of each stato Is
to bo expended within that stain in the
next 10 years and 40 per cent goes Into
tho geneial fund, thin fund, of course,
to bo ntlllted In Arizona, Nevada and
other states and territories badly in
need of irrigation, but whish them
selves contribute little toward tho great
object. Tho total Initiation fund, as
now computet), is 110,091,830, or mora
than 11,000,000 in excels of tho previ
ous estimates cf tho land ofllce. More
than ono half of this amount wis con
tributed last year.
